FINALLY, your done! You can make different variations of this wallet and add some stuff and whatnot. This is how mine turned out.
This is just a simple wallet, good for beginners and people that may be having trouble with a more advanced one. This one is just a simple billfold and four credit card pockets, with an optional design. Keep in mind that this is also my first instructable (Yay!) and all of the photos are taken from my phone. Enjoy!
For the materials you will need:
- One or two colors of duct tape. You may need more for designs.
- A ruler
- An X-Acto knife (exacto?)
- A pair of scissors
- A credit card or gift card
Step 2: Cut the strips for the billfold
Cut four 8 in.-8.5 in. strips of both colors. These will be used for the billfold. I say 8-8.5 because if you are starting out and/ or you suck at this, you may want 8.5 in. so you can trim your edges later on. You can go closer to 8 in. when you become more advanced, and do a couple of these.
Step 3: Put the strips together
Lay one red strip upside down. Watch out, because it folds over easily. Like in the first picture, lay the yellow on top so there is just a little bit of red showing. Flip this over. Lay a red following the straight pattern, as shown in the second picture. Continue this, and when you reach the final yellow strip, lay it so the end is similar to the one above, and the one in picture 1 and 3.
Step 4: Fold and fold
Now you will simply fold over the small red part thats left on the ends, like in picture 1. Do this on both ends. After that, you will fold the Whole thing in half, as perfect as possible, hot dog style.crease it, and apply weight. Leave aside.
Step 5: While that is being weighted...
Lets make the ends to our billfold. As shown in picture 1, measure the end, while its being weighed.mines a little more than 3 in. So, i made the strip in picture 2 a little more than 3 in. Now i have no idea why, but i cut it into five parts. you only really need about three.
